Citroen has served up a hot and tasty new special edition for the summer in the shape of the C3 Pluriel Latte, which introduces a classy new body colour and leather upholstery as well as air conditioning as standard.

Stimulating to the eye, the C3 Pluriel Latte comes in a fresh new ‘Ivory’ body colour that is nicely complemented by a rich blend of stylish ‘aluminium’ roof arches, bumper inserts, side rubbing strips and door handles.

On the inside of this range-topping model, Citroen has introduced an attractive new leather finish – dark grey on the lower section of the seats and cream, to match the exterior, on the upper parts. To complete the reinvigorating look, the steering wheel and door grab handles are also finished off in leather.

Air conditioning and electric folding door mirrors are indicative of the C3 Pluriel Latte’s top-end specification list, which also includes variable power steering, remote central locking with deadlocks, four electric windows and a CD player. An impressive 4-star Euro NCAP rating ensures that the C3 Pluriel Latte not only looks great, but is one of the safest small cars around too.

A supermini during the winter months and a convertible during the summer, the C3 Pluriel offers customers real flexibility. With the roof up, the C3 Pluriel offers space for four occupants and a generous sized boot, yet the opportunity to choose from a variety of set-ups, including the option of removing the roof arches, ensures that passengers can enjoy real wind-in-the-hair-motoring come the warmer weather.

The Citroen C3 Pluriel Latte special edition is equipped with a 75hp 1.4i petrol engine that returns in excess of 52mpg in out-of-town motoring and is priced at £12,745, including the current £1,500 cashback.
